At least one U.K. Apple Store sells out of the Apple iPhone 5s

At least one U.K. Apple Store sells out of the Apple iPhone 5s
Just a few days ago,, there was talk that the Apple iPhone 5s was going to be hard to find on launch day because of a couple of rumored production problems with the fingerprint sensor and the camera. Add to that the lack of a pre-order period for the full-featured iPhone, and demand for the Apple iPhone 5s was bound to be extraordinary today.

According to a tweet sent out by Macworld staff writer Ashleigh Allsopp, at least one U.K. Apple Store was sold out of the iPhone 5s just 30 minutes after putting it up for sale. At this Regent Street location, a sign has already been put up at the front of the store that reads "Due to the popularity of iPhone 5s, we've sold out today."

The good news is that the device is expected back in stock on Monday at the Regent Street Apple Store, in all colors. Still, they suggest you call ahead at 9am to make sure.

I'm happy with my G2, but please don't hate on other people, especially an American company. Let them have their day, besides, Samsung wished people were so loyal and delight to have their product.

Apple needs some serious help if they want to keep up with the competition

Better yet, interesting how they already had an iPoster iMocked-Up and ready for display. Puh'leeeeze, marketing stunt. Or, they just have about 10 iDudz per store. I was by Fifth Avenue store just yesterday afternoon and witnessed the MAD rush for myPAPIself; if you can call 25 lifeless people grazing outside the store a "MAD RUSH". Best part was, all the NYPD barricades that were delivered thinking they would have hundreds of international tourists and locals lined up for an iUpgrade just neatly racked near the curb and not iN Use. Check out my profile pic; it's even geotagged (if the info transferred over in the Copy & Paste). WHAT AN iJOKE .. . lol

Yes we believe you with the 25 people line. This article says 1417. There seems to be a huge disparity. I don't know who to believe :(

You must be in iDenial, nevertheless, where you at

Latitude: 40:76388931274414
Longitude: -73.97333526611328

otherwise known as Fifth Avenue and East 58th Street at 2:20 PM EDT on yesterday, Thursday, September 19, 2013, otherwise known as International Brainwash Day??? I don't think so but I most certainly was and I have pictures to prove it. Pretty pathetic turn out for a flagship store: The Flagship Store, in fact, for the Northeast. Tragic, simply TRAGIC!!

iPhone 4 = 1300
iPhone 5 = 1176
iPhone 5C/5S = 1417
iPhone 5C/5S = 25 (according to PAPINYC)

We all know that you didn't go out the house yesterday and stayed inside your mom's basement. Please stop posting for today and stop embarassing yourself PAPINYC.

Really lame, or should I say iLame, you really think we're stupid enough to believe that the Fifth Avenue Apple Store or ANY Apple Store is still selling the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, since they ALL have been iDiscontinued by Apple. Read here:

Feel free to fill in the ".'s"

You ignorant bro? The number listed is the number of people that lined up when the product was released at launch.

If you learned to write English maybe your post would express that but, as written, it iMplies differently. Proof is in the pudding, my profile pic was taken yesterday afternoon at 2:20; I guess all those thousands of people lined up after Starbucks Coffee houses around the country closed for business last night, giving their employees a chance to run home and drop off their Aprons to go line-up? Or, after bus routes ended!

It's been a difficult week for me with all the thousands of animals blocking me on Fifth Ave as I traverse around the 'hood. I tripped several times this week; glad the "MAD RUSH" of 25 brAinless people is OVER.

It is dead though!
Those iBrain users are programmed and follow the leader to buy what is only given, not what you can have!
Android= Freedom
Apple= Restrictions
Linux= Freedom
iOS= Closed

They only had 24 in stock, again to cause a big hype, like they always do! Same old, same old tricks really works! And I users, iFans believe in it

It's so dead that you will not see this kind of line for ANY android device. You mad TROLL? You should preach your freedom of speech in an Apple store. Tell them that they can't buy the smartphone platform that THEY prefer.

You should work for the government, I've never seen anyone spin the facts as much as you do. Simple fact is there are hundreds of Android handsets so yes, it's not likely they'll be lines like the iPhone gets. It's really common sense to know that.

What's more important and likely you'll never admit, people standing in line for phone X doesn't diminish phone Y in any manner. Nor does standing in line for phone X make phone X better.

We all know Apple will sell millions of iPhones, why does it always have to be a constant internet war with some people? Are people so insecure that they feel they have to win every internet argument? Sometimes is seems like that's the case.

We are smart not lining up for a 2011 device with 2 years old specs

We await and get these delivered to our address

We don't buy the same looking device over and over and over again and again

Android has command scripts
In iOS you can't tinker anything
You can't modify the devices CPU, GPU
When you buy a laptop, PC, car you have every option to alter.

We are given choices
Apple gives you one device to choice

BMW
Mercs
Audi
VW
They all give options
Apple gives you what they like and you must not obey it
